Copying Directory with SFM Loses Icons for Some Files

Article ID: 101655

Article Last Modified on 10/31/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q101655

SYMPTOMS

When you use Windows NT Services for Macintosh (SFM) to copy a directory from a Macintosh computer, some icons may be missing on the destination.

CAUSE

Some custom icons are stored on the disk as hidden files. If the hidden file uses a Unicode character in its filename, the File Manager uses the shortname to copy the file. Because the destination file has a different name, the icon is lost.

RESOLUTION

There is no method to work around this situation at this time.
